      A narrative ballet or story ballet is a form of ballet that has a plot and is typically a production with full sets and costumes. It was an invention of the eighteenth century. Most romantic and classical ballets of the 19th century were narrative ballets. Among the most well known are Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.

The choreographic moves between the corporeal and cerebral to tell the stories of these.
